Jnr Sharks re­sults

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

THE Un­der 15 Sharks ran into a red hot Broth­ers’ out­fit last Fri­day night at Mann St and were out mus­cled 52-6.

The first-half of the match was very com­pet­i­tive and there were some great pas­sages of play from both teams. Levi Wil­liams moved into the five eight po­si­tion and did a fine job, while Ai­den Ch­ester­field was also out­stand­ing for the sharks.

The sec­ond-half saw Broth­ers put their foot down and with their size and speed across the field piled on the tries and were sim­ply too good. To the boys’ credit, they didn’t back down from the Broth­ers’ big boys and can cer­tainly be proud of the way they played. Ai­den Ch­ester­field was named man of the match.

This week the Un­der 7s played an ex­cit­ing game against Ed­mon­ton Light­ning with Moss­man hav­ing a full ca­pac­ity side of 12 play­ers against their op­po­si­tion.

Some play­ers to men­tion who dis­played courage in their run-ups on the day were Dakota San­tarossa, Saxon Fer­ris and Leilani Pitt.

Tack­ling proved to be the key to this week’s (16-4) win as all the play­ers put into prac­tice what they have been learn­ing at train­ing - skills for safe tack­ling, mov­ing up as a line of de­fence and get­ting back on side.

Try scor­ers for this week were David Neller (3) and Matthias Jack­o­nia, and Man-of-the Match for this week goes to Hal­lie Jenk­ins for good tack­ling and strong run­ning up of the ball.

The Coach’s Award went to Fletcher Mac­don­ald as he al­ways gives 100 per­cent ef­fort at train­ing and on game day.

The Un­der 8s had an­other fan­tas­tic game on Satur­day de­feat­ing Ed­mon­ton Light­ning 44-0. Great de­fence from the Sharks kept Light­ning score­less and an out­stand­ing team ef­fort re­sulted in tries for Malachi Jack­o­nia (5), Tyson Os­borne, Brodie Fran­cis, Jay­den (2) and Kye Durie (2). Kye was awarded Man-of-the-match for a whopping 21 tack­les and the en­tire team earned them­selves Coaches’ Awards for out­stand­ing team plays.

The Un­der 8s then backed up for an­other game against Red­lynch as an opener to the North­ern Pride ver­sus Sun­shine Coast at Bar­low Park. The boys came away with an­other win and were all very ex­cited to have had the op­por­tu­nity to play in front of the Pride play­ers and spec­ta­tors.

The mighty Un­der-9 team this week weren’t so mighty. We let in nine tries to our one. The Ed­mon­ton team taught us a valu­able footy les­son. If you don’t hold the ball and don’t tackle you will not win the game. When we held on to the ball we played well.

Matty Graves, in his front row po­si­tion played above his weight and never gave up. Jimmy Smith came in with some great runs and good tack­les. This week’s Man-of-the-match award goes to Brax­ton Wienert who played great footy. He is a con­sis­tent foot­ball player who takes on­board ad­vice and puts it into prac­tise.

Af­ter a bye last week, the Un­der 11s were look­ing for­ward to tak­ing on Red­lynch. Their coach­ing staff were proud of the boys with their im­proved at­ti­tude and com­mit­ment to train­ing show­ing where it mat­ters on the footy field. with a 30-10 win.

The game saw Pay­ton Adams and Zek­lyn Gro­gan-ryan con­trol­ling their sides of the field in at­tack and the en­tire team in de­fence. Keaton Mor­ris off the bench made good runs up the mid­dle and Man-of-the-match Jay­den Fer­ris played out­stand­ing at dummy half. Caleb Ross and Josh Cran­swick played well in the cen­tres tak­ing their train­ing skills to the game.

The Un­der 12 boys took on Kan­ga­roo Gold on Satur­day. In the first-half, the boys were still half asleep with the Roos com­ing up with a con­verted try lead­ing 6-4 at half time. Af­ter a pep talk from the coach, the boys woke up with come­back tries by Wade Dun­can, Austin Tay­ley and two tries to Len­nox Scho­nen­berger.

With a huge ef­fort through­out the game by Cal­lum Mather, the boys with their great de­fence and Cody Port with his line-break­ing runs earned them an 18-6 win at full time. Man-of-the-match went to Cal­lum Mather and the Coaches’ Award went to Cody Port.

The Sharks U13s ab­so­lutely played the house down against Broth­ers on Satur­day, com­ing away with a 14-10 win in a very tough bat­tle. With no re­serves on the bench, they knew they would have to tough it out for the full hour. Great courage was shown by ev­ery­one on the team but Man-of-the-match hon­ours went to Wayne Oui with Matty Ch­ester­field win­ning the play­ers’ player.
